“The Verdant Bough”

The photo was shot at this really cool place in Wyoming I found while running around Yellowstone. There was a recent rainstorm, so a splash of color made everything a tad more intense... I’m glad I didn’t fall down that cliff while shooting, but I guess that goes without saying.

Mir Bangle Seller
Mirs are a nomadic tribe living mainly in Gujarat, India. Mirs were geneology keepers for Kharapat Rabari tribes and historically traveled with these pastoralists. Today, some 10,000 Mirs live across western India .
Mir women wear a short backless blouse, a front closing sleeveless jacket, a 20 meter gathered skirt and a 5 meter veil. Most striking are their ornaments: copious necklaces and tassels fashioned from beads, coins and trinkets and in particular their white bangles from wrist to armpit. Though Muslim, each Mir has both a Hindu and a Muslim name. Today Mirs do manual agricultural and construction labour. The women are expert in beadwork. [Source: Rann Riders]

North Georgia lake, USA
See, I still have some old images done without fisheye lens:-)
For this one I've used ultra wide 'straight' lens, Canon 14mm F2.8L, it is among my favorite lenses for landscaping.

Wide angle works best for the places where there is nothing fancy around: no mountains, waterfalls or city-scrapes. Like here, just a lake, red clay and stones around.
But with ultra wide lens even such "boring" stuff can make an interesting composition, especially when horizon line is not in the middle of the frame:-)
Oh yes, HDR technique helps too: this is multishot composed into one image with Photomatix and Photoshop.
BTW, this shot is a part of another "before and after" HDR gallery, if you are curious: http://goo.gl/0HGQo

Enjoy and share:-)

A lot of the problems we face are essentially man-made, so naturally as human beings we should also be able to reduce them. Natural disasters, of course, are in a different category, but according to environmental scientists even they may owe something to human behaviour. Therefore, if we are optimistic, take a longer view, and we employ realistic methods, we can contribute to making the world a better place.

Remember the man, remember the dream, remember the lessons of the past.
